WWI Edith Cavell Silk Postcard


A good WWI silk postcard featuring the famous Edith Cavell. Some minor aging to the border but silk remains good. 100 years old.

Measures 3 1/2" x 5 3/8"

Edith Louisa Cavell 4 December 1865 – 12 October 1915 was a British nurse. She is celebrated for saving the lives of soldiers from both sides without discrimination and in helping some 200 Allied soldiers escape from German-occupied Belgium during the First World War, for which she was arrested. She was accused of treason, found guilty by a court-martial and sentenced to death. Despite international pressure for mercy, she was shot by a German firing squad. Her execution received worldwide condemnation and extensive press coverage.
